In reply to: you're right, still o/t posted by Alissa on June 25, 2002 at 13:22:56:There was a great show on wildfires on NOVA tonight, featuring a
forester from NM who managed his space just as you have spoken of,
just as people here and in Africa have done for thousands of years.
The Los Alamos fire dropped to the ground through his area, and did
not crown! I am glad our government is finally seeing through the
bureaucracy to this. Smokey the Bear was wrong. (in some degree). Of
course, I'm not for clearcutting either, I've read what is happening
in Ore/Wash; not good. I'll just keep praying/hennaing/living as
lightly (and commiserating!)as I can.
